Game of Thrones Characters as Magic: The Gathering Cards
People all across the Tumblrverse have been mocking up their own MTG cards based on Game of Thrones characters and the results are pretty epic. Check out some more here and here.
Oooh! I have one!
Daenerys Targaryen 2RRWW Whenever Daenerys Targaryen enters the battlefield or attacks, you may search your library for up to one Dragon and/or one Soldier creature and put them onto the battlefield. They have haste in addition to their other abilities and attack each turn if able. 3/5
Okay, if LEGO can cross over with Harry Potter and DC Comics, then Magic HAS to be able to cross over with Game of Thrones. Make this happen, people!
You know how roommates often have little squabbles about things like who was supposed to take out the trash, or who ate whose food from the fridge? Well, this is what happens when two roommates take out their aggressions toward each other over a game of Magic. Let’s just say things get heated rather quickly.
Also, as soon as I’m done typing this I’ll be on my way to my local game shop for the Dragon’s Maze pre-release. Anyone else going? Let us know in the comments and tell us what cool cards you got!

This Hello Kitty Wedding Dress Seems Like A Pretty Good Way To Get Left At The Altar
Fellas, say you’re dating the perfect girl. Nothing weird, creepy, or particularly out of the normal about her. Say you get engaged to this girl. Then the wedding day comes, you anxiously await walking down the aisle and seeing your perfect, beautiful bride, but then you get punched right in the eyes sockets with THIS monstrosity.
They say it’s bad luck for the groom to see the bride’s dress before the wedding, but I think seeing this dress waiting for you down the aisle is just plain bad luck, period. Everything about it spells disaster and would send yours truly calming 180-ing back out whatever door I came in from.
Note to the ladies: please don’t ever do this.
And, yes, the above picture is clearly PhotoShopped, but it’s the principal of the whole thing. There’s principalities involved.
Ron English’s toys from the Cereal Killers series always make me laugh. Count Calorie joins his nutritionally deficient friends, Cap’n Cornstach and Fat Tony, in August. He’s 8 inches tall and turns your milk brown in seconds flat. Pre-order one at myplaticheart.
They’ve turned Hello Kitty into a lot of things - a KISS member and a Street Fighter character, just to name a few recent ones. But I’ve never seen her turned into a food item. The bento series contains a bunch of food items such as onigiri, peppers, and octopi with Hello Kitty’s face on them. This is just bizarre. And awesome. My favorite is the plush chicken wing above.
Coachella - A Pretty Great Place For Trendy-Ass Posers
What happens when a camera crew from Jimmy Kimmel Live heads to Coachella and asks a bunch of a wanna-be hipsters about bands that don’t exist? These kids are so in-the-know that they already know about them.
Happy 4/20, loyal Albotians! If you’re looking for the best games to play when you’re high, trippin’ balls, or just plain bored, then look no further. We’ve whittled it down to a narrow list of eight titles that lend themselves favorably to medicated play. We would have done ten, but we really have the munchies right now and the GIF above is super distracting.
8. Noby Noby Boy [PS3]
Weirdness from Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi. It plays like some sort of surreal trip/dream. You can also poop things.
7. LSD: Dream Emulator [PS1]
This Japanese-only title is a bizzarre acid trip/dream simulator based on 10 years worth of dream journal entries by one of the game’s developers. There’s also a 2-disc companion soundtrack and the dream journal itself was published as Lovely Sweet Dream in limited edition. It’s overall weirdness has earned it a huge cult following and American gamers are still hoping that this is eventually released on the U.S. PlaystationNetwork.
6. Lumines Electronic Symphony [PS Vita]
Tetris on Ecstasy. Don’t make the mistake of writing this off as a just another puzzle game. If you like combo-driven game mechanics, going for high scores, sweet tunes, and pretty lights & colors, then this (or any of the Lumines games) is perfect for your 4/20 game time. Just be warned: a play session can last well over an hour which is pretty impressive for a puzzle game.
5. Sound Shapes [PS3/PS Vita]
Music-based platforming with an all-star line-up of indie video game artists and musicians ranging from Beck to Deadmau5. The unlockable Death Mode levels are hella’ hard, but equally rewarding. If you’re feeling creative, you can also try your hand at the level creator or download stages made by the community.
4. N2O: Nitrous Oxide [PS1]
Tunnel shooter a-la Tempest with a soundtrack by The Crystal Method. You collect “E” and power-ups include a Mushroom Shield. Oh, and the more stuff you shoot, the faster your ship goes - it gets pretty crazy. As an added bonus, you can even pop the disc into a regular CD player to listen to the soundtrack.
3. Rez [Dreamcast/PS2/Xbox 360]
Rez is just a great game to play on any damn day of the year. See also: Dyad, Flower, Child of Eden, Journey.
2. Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 
The colors, Duke! THE COLORS!!!
1. Katamari Damacy [PS2]
The intro alone is almost a drug itself. Nothing makes sense and everything is beautiful. It also has one of the greatest video game soundtracks of all time.
The Odd and Awkward ABC Family Promo of Batman Begins
I thought this was a joke. It still may be a joke, but I can’t tell. Everyone is reporting on this video being real, so I guess it must be…? ABC Family has succeeded in the ultimate troll and this is how the company really thought it could promote Batman Begins.
